i wonder what name lola has for sugar in her contacts... :O
Nobody 18th Aug 2016, 7:58 PM edit delete reply

realistically, probably kysley because that's how sugar introduces herself to strangers. or, you know. something like "(100 emoji) YOUAERE My FUCKIGN GI>RLFREIONGD"

i have a really weird disability in my brain where i cant really detect patterns enough to decipher visual/audio projects

i need some help knowing what kind of specific creature Lola is? ive been able to get (with some help) that Sugar is a cat and that Lola's friend from her extra is a dog, and that that asshole at the gas station was a horse. but Lola is still an enigma to me. any help? i hope i dont sound stupid typing this

hey there, proud.
sugar is actually not a cat! she lacks the heart-shaped nose structure and round triangle ears, although a lot of her behavior is based on cats as obligate carnivores.
in the comments on this page, i specify about sugar's species: http://drop-out.webcomic.ws/comics/28
lola is a snail fur-- i explain a little more about them in an answer on this page: http://drop-out.webcomic.ws/comics/41/

oh boy howdy im embarrassed to have given Sugar the wrong species!

however, i think it so so so so cool that you picked such specific types of creatures for your comics <3 (and very sorry to make you answer the same questions again)

Who're the do not answer guys? I'm assuming they're the same person, and maybe Lola has a stalker?

you're half right! they're multiple people, but one of them would definitely qualify as a stalker.

Oh my gosh I was reading the scene earlier during day and like somehow at night there's more contrast I guess it's a coincidence/bad monitor thing but still interesting how thus the scene like, it feels like it's matched with time of day somehow via that.

Anyway, the actual commentary, some standout parts I feel are how the panel progression looks/feels like a camera pan mid-page 48. 48 also really shows your strength in control of subtle detail like, how Lola's expression changes in the last two panels like, really similar looks but the subtleties show the difference as they perk up at Sugar's last line on the page.

Also page 48 and 49 are really heavy on gayness and that's OwO because gayness. (Tho then 49 in the middle goes to Q^Q but is understandable like the panel borders at said point shows the overwhlemedness.)

On pg 50 I noticed Lola's eye shines returning I'm not sure if it's for the symbolic reason for b/c tearing up? Tho I do notice the eye shines disappear after the battery hits low, as shown in the second-to-last panel so like it seems like Lola's eye shines like a sort of lifeline/detachment from everyone non-Sugar in her life, representing when said social net is "present" or not. I can't wait to find out the answer whenever that is revealed.

quick question, and forgive me if it's been asked on your blog or here already (not that i could find, though)-- but is there a reason to the numbers on the dial pad being out of order? i've noticed it a couple of times. is it supposed to mean like...disorientation? from withdrawal, mental illness, etc... I dunno! Thank you by the way; I adore this comic.

heya grandin.
some phones randomize the number pads on the unlock screen by default so that someone can't memorize what numbers you pressed from afar and unlock it later. this is what lola's phone does.

i was rereading this scene, and let me say, i appreciate fake fictional branding more than i should. "fictipedia" is Great.
also, that little blurb under the first link... hoo boy

ive just reread the comic from the start, as well as the comments. i wanted to come back here, because... i actually get the impression that this scene was the point where lola actually began to consider suicide, rather than being the point where they started having second thoughts about going through with it
